Dr. Michael Pinzur, an orthopaedic foot specialist at Loyola, sees many people with complicated foot and ankle injuries or deformities, including patients who may have been told they would need an amputation. He has vast experience in foot and ankle reconstruction, which has allowed his patients to avoid amputation. It's important with diabetic patients that they are under careful supervision so that they can avoid the ulcers and nonhealing wounds that can develop from diabetes. He has published extensively on how patients can avoid amputation from preventable conditions. For more information or to make an appointment, please call (888) LUHS-888/(888) 584-7888.
